Film Grammar # 12 – Marvel, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Season 4, Episode 4

Daisy (Chloe Bennet) to Coulson (Clark Gregg): “Thank you for saving Simmons and I back there.”

Okay, the rule is very clear and very simple: a subject is a subject and an object is an object. And the test for whether you’re correct or not is even simpler: leave the first person out. Thus: “Thank you for saving I back there.”
Sounds like an idiot speaking!

So: Daisy should have said, “Thank you for saving Simmons and me back there.”
See? It’s easy!
